Assange urges US to release secret drone strikes documents
Sydney: Julian Assange, founder of the whistle blowing website Wikileaks, has urged US officials to leak secret documents on drone strikes.
Assange used a rare US television appearance to condemn President Barack Obama’s controversial green light to kill American citizens who conspire with al Qaeda.
The Australian national said that the broad discretion to kill citizens shows a ‘collapse’ in the American system, the Age reports.
Assange spoke via a video link from Ecuador’s embassy in London, where he has been holed up since June to avoid extradition to Sweden over allegations of sexually assaulting two women.
Britain has refused him safe passage to Ecuador.
